I'd love to know what happened to the War Memorial plaque to the right of Santa.
Reverend David. Is St Nathaniel’s still an active church. It used to stand out quite plainly across the Moss, from beyond Melling’s farm, Spring View. Is Melling’s farm still an active farm. Went to school at the same time as the farmer’s son, in the 1940s.
I thought Melling's farm (Moss Hall ) was off what is now Seaman's Way,in Higher Ince?
Elizebeth. There were two Melling’s farms. One in Spring View, and one near to Liverpool Road, (A577)
Ok Albert,I thought the farm in Spring View was Bushell's though.
I was under the same impression as Elizabeth re Melling's and Bushell's Farms but sometimes people know places by different names, and perhaps the owners changed over the years but some people kept to the old names, (such as Cain's Pie Shop in Ince when it had actually changed to Ashurst's). Hope you are both well, Elizabeth and Albert.
Fair to middling Irene. Not too good now on my legs. Given up driving as my balance isn’t too good at all.
Elizebeth. We always knew the one in Spring View, as Melling’s farm. As I mentioned, Eric Melling went to the same school as I did. He lived in the farm at Spring View. I last visited Spring View in the nineties. I seem to remember that the farm was a preserved listed building.
Yes, Albert, St Nathaniel's is still active - though now without a Vicar of its own.
Their Great War Memorial was the church tower, with attendant painted boards around the sanctuary walls inside:
Ok Albert,thanks.Yes thanks Irene,I'm fine ,hope you and Peter are both well.
